EXPERIENCED employment lawyer Simon Blake has joined Walker Foster Solicitors as part of the firm's continued growth.

Simon, who will join the commercial team, will work with business owners to help them manage their staff effectively and to stop them being distracted by employment law issues.

Managing partner Keith Hardington said: “Simon’s approach is very much in line with the way we all look after all our clients at Walker Foster. We get to know them and gain an understanding of what they want to achieve, so that we can apply the law to provide practical and workable solutions to complex problems.”

Simon is a member of the Employment Lawyers Association and is a visiting lecturer at BPP Law School. His move follows a merger between Walker Foster and his specialist employment law firm, Simon Blake Solicitor Limited.
